Re: spining and fluff problem

You have a bad brake assembly. Sometimes you can turn washer upside down and access the white pad and sand it and the metal stator. Then dump corn starch in there to help release.

During the spin cycle it spins correctly until the last 2-3 minutes and then it just fluffs clothes

Some machines used a variable speed slow down process to avoid clothing damage, this removes the items from the outside of the drum where if the clothing was left for a length of time after the cycle has finished it could damage the fibres, this way the clothing is also easier to remove from the machine and promotes airflow over the items

In spin cycle, water sometimes does not drain at all; other times the clothes are wet, other times the spin cycle works fine. Problen can be rectified by placing the washer into spin cycle a few times.

when on spin check to see if you can hear a low whirring noise {the pump} if the machine is not pumping or not pumping fast enough for sufficient water to drain out of the machine then the machine will not spin due to having to much water in. i would also check to see if all filters on the waste water output are clear of any foreign bodies as this will reduce the speed of which the water is pumped out of the machine{some machines have 2 filters } good luck

Spinning fast and furious, just doesn't wring clothes dry

It sounds like you need a water pump!
See if it's pumping water next time you do load by looking at the discharge hose going to the drainage pipe and get back to me!

Dear shelldon39, Fri 2-20-2009 9:24pm EST (USA)

Some machines will shut down during the spin cycle as a precaution to prevent damage!

They will do this if you overload the washer with clothes and/or use too much detergent!

If this doesn't help please get back to me with more details!

Excess water in clothes after spin cycle

Unblock the outflow pipe from the machine that goes into the sump under the sink. (have a pot ready for water overflow) This will help drain the water. If the spin cycle is making a screetching sort of noise then it is possible that the carbon brushes will need changing. This affects the spinning if the brushes are worn.

If it goes through the complete cycle o.k. except for the slow spin then the motor itself needs to be checked.

Noise during spin cycles

GE WPXH214ACC Washer drum makes loud noise when spinning sometimes. We've had it since 2005 & never had this happen before. Washer is level, must stop & redistribute clothes to correct. Just started happening now.
